Augmentation Without Boundaries

The 14th IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality

Call for Workshops

ISMAR workshops are interactive events involving participants. We therefore ask workshop organizers foster attendee involvement, making it a primary goal. ISMAR encompasses multiple domains of research. We encourage workshop organizer teams from multiple institutions to propose specific themes from both, Science & Technology and Arts, Media, & Humanities tracks to be explored in workshops. In order to extend the discussion of possible future topics and trends, we also invite people from outside the Mixed and Augmented Reality community to participate in ISMAR workshops.


ISMAR workshops provide a platform for presentations of novel work, work in progress and position papers. In order to ensure the quality of workshops the presentations have to meet a certain level of quality. Thus, we ask organizers to propose ways to ensure the quality of presentations.

The workshop papers can be published on ISMAR 2015 WS Proceedings with IEEE Xplore. Only peer reviewed papers can be appeared on IEEE-Xplore. The number of pages must be 6-8 for each paper.

ISMAR workshops may also serve as a platform to actively experience the insights of a variety of pervasive computing topics in seminars. Since seminars aim for a maximum of interactivity, we ask organizers of seminars to focus on proposals of how to involve attendances. This can be for example, by organizing hands-on sessions or pro-contra discussions of reading lists. Workshops may also be organized as a combination of both, resulting in seminars with presentations of novel work, work in progress or position statements.

Organizers are expected to be proactive in the field where they propose a workshop. Potential workshop organizers should also note that at least one workshop organizer is required to attend those workshops they are organizing. Any change to the workshop organization team must be submitted in writing at least two weeks prior to the paper deadline. No changes to the workshop organization team can be made after this date to ensure that potential participants submitting papers to workshops are aware of the final organization team.
